Past Events

BACK

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) hosts and organizes conferences and other national and international scientific events that bring together researchers and students to discuss the latest developments related to synchrotron light techniques as well as accelerator physics and engineering. LNLS also regularly organizes schools and workshops aiming to popularize synchrotron techniques and to train users, new and regular, in obtaining, processing and analyzing experimental data.


May 20th to 21st, 2020

AgroEnviro Workshop

The 1st annual AgroEnviro Workshop – Applications of Synchrotron Radiation for Foundational Science in Agricultural and Environmental Research – will be held on 20 and 21 May, 2020 at the brand new Sirius building of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, state of São Paulo, in Brazil.

The aim of the workshop is to motivate scientists from diverse regions of Brazil to utilize the highly advanced 4th generation synchrotron, Sirius, to address fundamental science questions for solving agricultural and environmental problems of concern in Brazil.

Cateretê Workshop

The aim of the Cateretê workshop is to present and discuss the new scientific perspectives offered at the Coherent Scattering beamline Cateretê, specifically X-ray imaging and time-resolved capabilities.

The Cateretê beamline at Sirius will be dedicated to coherent and time-resolved scattering experiments. It will provide cutting edge research tools that are non-existent today in Brasil, like 3D imaging with 10’s nanometer resolution, X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) to study dynamics and ultra-small angle X-ray scattering.

29th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU)

The 29th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) aims to gather the LNLS user community, encouraging the exchange of experiences and debates on the existing and future facilities. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures. With the imminent inauguration Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, the participation of the scientific community becomes essential to describe their needs and expectations for the new synchrotron source. The RAU meeting is the ideal place to foster this debate.
